to suggest about this. jane: i want to put in what peggy noonan wrote in the "wall street journal," spefs a conservative speech writer for ronald reagan. the president does not seem to see or hear, he does not respond, he is not supple, able to see observations and change tact. he has a grim determination to bowl this thing through. he negotiates each day with congress, not with the people. but the people hate congress. has he not noticed? how do you answer that question. >> well, i think that's -- i don't think he has. in fact i think one of the things is that this white house believes that all they need to do is put the president out there and they can solve any problem and all they need to say is that, you know, here's what the program actually is, even if your eyes don't convince you of you -- of that. they've run up an amount of debt, spent more on programs that don't meet the promise also they made about it, a health care bill that nobody thinks is going to lower their premiums, raise the quality of care, or bend the health curve down, all of which the administration say is the rati
in full campaign mode. your reaction, next, a peggy? college park. did you vote for the president as an independent? how the feel about him? caller: no, i did not. it is refreshing to have a really smart president. i watched yesterday and i am sorry to say, but if my company had employees who came to work and did not do anything and went on there would not have a job the next day. they would be terminated. you have republicans who are not doing anything. they get a paycheck every pay. and they do nothing. they are not serving us or earning their pay. just sitting down like recalcitrant children is totally amateur. they need to begin earning their pay and working for the american people. i don't care which party -- you are american and have been given a job, do it. i have a suggestion regarding closing the deficit. it is the divorced tax. maybe we should start thinking about it. it is a no-bring your. people are divorcing -- it is bad for the family, bad for the community. -- it is a no-brainer. host: callernext, lafayette, louisiana. caller: i like that the president called out su
about this, peggy noonan writing in "wall street journal," she says this -- she's worked in a republican white house as a speechwriter, a very smart woman -- does she have a point there? >> she's a have good writer and everything, yeah, if they shut the government down and try to impeach him, it probably will help him, but the democrats i don't think the president -- you know, the democrats are going to try to do as well as they can in the next election. we'll probably lose some seats. president reagan lost seats in, but the predictions were that you were going to lose more seats, if i remember. >> i have to wonder, james, whether, despite the fact that you got your president reelected in '96, whether you wouldn't have preferred we had not taken over for congress and you had your own majority for the remaining six years. >> on election night in november of 1994, i didn't go, wow, just what we needed. no one wants to lose an election, i promise you. >> there's still plenty of time between now and november, though economists still say, tony, as you well know, that given the population grow
